Clinical governance in aged care

Use the links above to access the Commission's Clinical Governance resources.

Please note: these resources are not available for hard copy order.

Clinical governance is an integrated set of leadership behaviours, policies, procedures, responsibilities, relationships, planning, monitoring and improvement mechanisms that are implemented to support safe, quality clinical care and good clinical outcomes for each consumer.

The Aged Care Quality Standards require aged care services that provide clinical care to demonstrate the use of a clinical governance framework (Standard 8, 3(e)).

For more information on Clinical Governance and the stakeholders involved in developing these resources, visit our Clinical Governance page.
